Training a New Generation of Chemists
Over the course of his career, Prof Ley has trained over 350 PhD and postdoctoral students, many of whom have gone into industry or University appointments. Of his previous students some 30 or more have professorships or lectureships in the UK with a further 50 or so worldwide. The chart below, from an earlier tally, reflects the destination of his PhD and post-doctoral students. What’s clear from this picture is how companies and universities value the quality of training the Ley group students have received.
